  3. RihYonce November 27, 2016

    Congrats to Queen bey. Slaying these award shows all year ! Can’t wait to see her snatch these Grammy nominations on December 6. ??

    • Joenysmith November 28, 2016

      Keep wishing m***********.

      • RihYonce November 28, 2016

        I know a little something you don’t ?

    • Me November 28, 2016

      Yeah and I’m sure she’ll show up for the white audience. She’d be front row st the soul train awards if it was the beginning of her career when only blacks supported her. This is why I don’t buy her stuff.

      • Lea November 28, 2016

        Same here f*** that b****!

  4. Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2016

    They stay kissing Beyonce’s @ss, yet she never show up.

    • Alex November 27, 2016

      @mark shut yo hating ass up!! Bey still gone be GREAT whether you or myself like her. #Saltyassnavypunks

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 28, 2016

      Has FRIH ever been to the soul train awards tho???? When was the last time FRIH attended the BET awards and performed(MINUS THE 2015 PROMO SLOT FOR ‘B**** BETTER FLOP’….)

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Hmm BBHMM outsold every single
        from Lemonade tho lol

      • Mark111 /.\ November 28, 2016

        Brings up Rihanna when the subject is Soul Train and Ms.Pro Black Beyonce. You pest say Rih isn’t a R&B artist, so why would she be there? And she was at BET in 2015. Funny how R&B pro black Beyonce wasn’t at the Soul Train awards, yet hopped her @ss at the Country Music Award at a drop of her hair hat.

      • BEY>RIH November 28, 2016

        So because she isn’t R&B she can’t show up to a BLACK awards show? And weren’t y’all the same ones who claim Needed Me is a r&b song? She literally showed up to the Bet awards last year to only promote the release of bbhmm.Ya’ll be the first to criticize Bey for not doing this and that but yo homegirl ain’t doing shít either lol.

  5. Starboy November 27, 2016

    A bunch of FLOPS is all I see!!!

  6. Dawn November 27, 2016

    Beyonce & rihanna know that the soul train awards are beneath them unless they are being honored…and if they keep putting rihanna in the Rb categories at these award shows with Beyonce…. The other Rb girls k Michelle fantasia, jasmine Sullivan chrisette michelle brandy Monica Janelle monae keyshia Cole meloni fionna can forget about ever receiving awards because beyonce and rihanna are the oy girls they care about which is unfair

  7. Datredd23 November 27, 2016

    Love on the Brain is really surprising me no promo and no video and it’s still rising massively love my queen Rih!

    • Starboy November 28, 2016

      She sang it horribly in Abu Dhabi

      • HailLegendBeysus November 28, 2016

        DEATH! The video’s circulating have litteraly all the comments shredding her to pieces! ?????
        I guess she gave all her vocals during her BBMA2016 performances. ?

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler November 28, 2016


      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 28, 2016


      • HailLegendBeysus November 28, 2016

        This tweet just about sums up scamanna tho LMFAO!!!
        “Rihanna be finessing the f*** outta fans. At the concerts skipping the high notes, acting like she feeling them b****** too much to sing ?”
        The replies are even more hilarious!

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Fans seeming to be enjoying themselves immensely I mean she was taking photo ops with leaders and other prestigious people of the region! Her global power and presence is amazing

    • RihYonce November 28, 2016

      She’s aggy ! We need a video ??

  8. HailLegendBeysus November 28, 2016

    Beyoncé cleaned house once again! Guess a certain someone will clean up at another fan voted award show aka The Teen Choice Awards ???
    Grammy Nominations are so close!!! OMG!!!

    • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

      Hmm mad because the GP prefers a certain other ??? Lol

      • HailLegendBeysus November 28, 2016

        The GP only want Frihanna when its free. When they gotta pay up all we hear is crickets.
        Auntie tour is playing hide and seek with its boxscores. When my fav who the GP apparently don’t prefer, had no problem selling out all her stops and reporting the attendances and earnings. ?☕

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Your fav needed Super Bowl hype to bring them numbers in Rihanna is outgrossing Bey for her age sweetie she is fine congrats to your fave for her tour but no need to try and shade Rih you know she is winning.

      • Fresj November 28, 2016

        That would be true if Beyonce’s latest album and tour didn’t slaughter Rihanna’s latest album and tour. Rihanna’s always been great at singles.

        Rihanna fans that frequent TGJ are damn there retarded. Especially that fat ugly queen that stays on tgj’s fb timeline.I bet you’re him.

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Sweetie Lemonade did no slaughter Anti the delusion lol Rih is sitting pretty with a 25 million dollar check to start and countless records broken! 33 weeks in the top 10 and very successful singles with millions sold! Anti is an award winning album and the second most streamed female album of all time. Her tour is a success and will definitely be grossing over 100 million and probably way more then that when final numbers are calculated since the European leg was very successful and had over 30 stadium dates ! Check her receipts hun!

      • BEY>RIH November 28, 2016

        Literally everything you brought up, Bey has slaughtered her in. We give her singles, but Lemonade is the most successful female release this year by FAR.

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        The way we compare the eras is not accurate both are great Anti is better to the Navy Lemonade is better to the Hive

  9. Surprise..(DEC 2013) November 28, 2016

    So BEYONCE won 4 awards and didn’t even perform in return for her ‘BOUGHT’ awards……INTERESTING. I WONDER HOW THE NAZI FEELS…LMAO

    • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

      The Navy is fine our Queen is still winning everyday lol

  10. Danny Beys November 28, 2016

    So no one else catches the shade of the Hip Hop award now being called Rhythm & Bars? No just me? Ok. Lol

  11. Hoeyonce November 28, 2016

    Twitter was dragging this fake thot. You’ll show up for CMAS AND VMAS but not soul train awards… lol these fools are a joke for kissing her ass and still no show from her and flop ratings.

    • Anne November 28, 2016

      Don’t forget to add BET awards to thar list. She showed up AND performed Freedom with Kendrick Lamar, the first and only televised performance of that song.

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        She’s had a lot of promo performing at nearly every major award show

  12. Datredd23 November 28, 2016

    Anti and Rihanna will definitely be cleaning up at the billboard awards where hype doesn’t matter. It’s all about the numbers and chart positions with them all facts lol

    • LB November 28, 2016

      Lemonade and Beyonce will definitely be cleaning up at the Grammy awards where hype doesn’t matter. It’s all about the talent and quality music lol

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Then why don’t artists like Whitney Mariah Madonna etc etc have less then 7 Grammies each? The Grammies are very biased and controversial in who they choose for the major awards everyone knows that hun

    • BEY>RIH November 28, 2016

      Anti will only be winning awards for its singles. The actual album has no chance against 25, Views, Lemonade, Purpose, etc. I dont see her picking up a lot of awards tbh but if she does good for her.

  13. Lea November 28, 2016

    In 2016 alone, Rihanna has scored the same amount of Top 10’s Beyoncé has scored this decade!

    • BEY>RIH November 28, 2016

      How much has Anti sold? Asking for a friend…

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Over 3 million SPS

      • Danny Bey November 28, 2016

        She asked for how much it SOLD… SPS is just the Navy’s best friend…

  14. Datredd23 November 28, 2016

    3 singles to have over a million sales only artist of 2016 with Too Good and Love on the Brain soon after approaching!

  15. Datredd23 November 28, 2016

    Anti is 3 millions SPS without 1.4 million Samsung gifted added if streaming were so
    easy why isn’t other artists? Especially after a giveaway of that magnitude even huge artists with core fan basses

    • HailLegendBeysus November 28, 2016

      Lies! Where are the receipts! That would mean Auntir qualifies for 4x platinum certification and I don’t see The RIAA giving it such! You know damn well Rihanna loves her certifications and would’ve sent that in quick!

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Navy has been saying the same thing the RIAA has not updated ther certifications yet because We Found Love qualifies to be a diamond platinum

      • HailLegendBeysus November 28, 2016

        It’s not up to the RIAA to update certifications. The artists or record label must submit in a request for it.

    • BEY>RIH November 28, 2016

      Bih Anti is not at 3 million SPS. Im starting to get tired of you hyping up ole girl stats like she having blockbuster success.

      • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

        Do your research hun it’s definitely 3 million SPS worldwide

  16. MUSICHEAD November 28, 2016

    Since Beyonce don’t wanna show up to the Soul Train Awards, they should stop nominating her. Ban her and give recognition to those who appreciate it.

  17. HailLegendBeysus November 28, 2016

    Also Rihanna isn’t seeinf Bey in tours like you said above. Rihanna may be grossing more at her age than Bey was but ticket prices were different then.
    Beyoncé and Rihanna have done practically the same amount of shows yet Beyoncé has grossed over $800 million and Rihanna has grossed over $400 million lol! Even Taylor is slaying Flopanna! ?

    • Datredd23 November 28, 2016

      She’s in the top 10 tours for female artists and she’s a black woman jump off her jock fr fr lol Using Taylor now huh? Well she’s slaying your fav aswell then it took Beyoncé how many years to teach this touring status???

  18. RoyalKev November 28, 2016

    King B basically sweep these awards! Lemonade’s been winning trophies everywhere: BET, VMAS and now Soul Train! It’s been a home for Bey all year long! It’s time to get these Grammys tho!

  19. Thando November 28, 2016

    To buy or not to buy an award, that is the question. Tis nobler……LMAO. They are rigged we now know. A very credible insider (Kanye) has let the “secret” loose.

    • BEY>RIH November 28, 2016

      Lmaooo at Kanye being “credible”.

  20. 2bad2bme November 28, 2016

    She hates these BET Award shows because they kiss her b*** too much and she doesn’t like that. I find it funny that Chance the rapper has been out since 2012 and now that he’s receiving recognition from Jay-Z and Beyonce, they giving him an award for best new artist? Lol

  21. Ciah’s Turtle November 28, 2016

    werk Tey !
